Books: Mapped:”

So why not visualize places mentioned in books on a map? Now you can. Our team has begun to animate the static information found in books by organizing a sample of locations from them on an interactive Google Map, with snippets of text from the book, and links to the actual pages where the locations are mentioned.

範例:

* The Travels of Marco Polo
* Around the World in Eighty Days

雖然科高和博客來有合作,但在台灣要試行這服務,可能要兩年。不過把自己的書(網路版)這樣弄可能會相當有趣,可以省掉一些談圖資授權的步驟吧。
